Marie may have been a little bit Country and Donny may have been a little bit Rock n Roll but they have nothing on The Rolling Stones.
From the beginning – The Rolling Stones’ sound has been entrenched in Country music. Is it their Blues’ influence which is also embedded in Country / Folk or was it Keith Richards’ fascination with Roy Rogers?

Gram Parsons was a huge influence on Richards and The Stones and added many an idea and education to The Greatest Rock n Roll Band of all time.
